Saturday Quilting Bring and Share (101)

Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share. Has time been moving slowly for you or racing by? We are aiming to make the weekend feel different from the week days we’ve been spending together in our household of three. I’m especially glad to have the routine of publishing SQBS to remind me it really is Saturday. This is an opportunity to bring along your project(s), share in the varied and inspiring information being circulated around the Worldwide Quilting Community and just BE for a little while 🙂

I’m in need of a fanfare… I actually have a FINISHED project to bring along and share. I completed hand quilting the applique cushion front and made an envelope back (with buttons!). I am so happy with this little step into the world of needle turned applique.

Here in the UK we have been told to expect this period of social isolation to last at least twelve weeks.

It’s been heartening to read positive blog posts written by other patchwork quilters adjusting to a change of life style and discovering silver linings. Bernie over at Needle & Foot has the joy of seeing photos of her new born Granddaughter, unable to visit her because of the restrictions Bernie is keeping busy delving into her UFOs to make charity quilts.

The online patchwork quilting community is a friendly place to be and a great place to stay connected with like minded creatives even in this period of physical isolation. This Saturday, 21st March, is (Inter)National Quilting Day. Many sewing get togethers will have had to be cancelled but do not loose heart, there are a whole host of quilt-a-longs and Quilting Day events being organised online.
